I pulled out my old Leica x1 camera the other day and noticed something strange.
There appears to be, behind the first lens element, an issue. It appears as though the coating has degraded within the lens, there is a small ring, in the centre of this element, which is approx 1mm in thickness, and with a diameter of approx 4mm wide. has this ever been an issue before? only shows up in certain light, sunlight, or direct light from my little lightbox. but not in regular indoor lighting.
apologies for the poor photos, taken with my phone for quick reference.
I have contacted camera clinic in australia and am waiting on a response as to what they think, but just wanted to ask around to see if anyone has seen anything like this before?
